Someone made reference to the color lavender and I can't find the info. Does anyone have the scoop on this?

Lavender is a/a b/b (or bc/bc) C/* (or C/c) d/d p/p mouse.

In other words, a pink-eyed lilac who does or does not carry PEW.

It's a very light shade and most proper show champagnes are actually lavenders. (Pet store-derived champagnes are always too dark.)

The lavender on TFM page is terribly dark and I doubt she's even lavender at all.

This is from the East Coast Mouse Association's standards:

ECMA said:
Lavender-Color is to be an even pinkish shade of lavender. It should be a nice blend of silver and champagne. Eye color is pink.
In show circles, lavender is not uncommon. It's just usually bred light and shown as champagne.
